Ludlow Castle
Ludlow Castle
One of England's finest ruined castles.
Founded by Walter de Lacy in 1075, this castle was constructed out of stone from the very beginning. It was first built during 1066 to 1085. The castle keep is possibly the oldest surviving feature of this castle, as it was built in the mid 12th century. After the Civil War, the castle sort of survived the battle, but not for long. In the 18th century, it fell into ruins, and it was originally going to be planned for demolition, until when Thomas Farnolls Pritchard announced that he was going to save it. He had enough money to keep it away from demolition, but didn't have enough money to keep it intact, so it remained in ruins. Thankfully, much of the remains still exist by today, and has is currently owned by the Earl of Powis since 1811. Viewed from the top of the north-east tower.
